Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.
The Secret To Loving Jesus Much
Remember the story of the woman who washed Jesus’ feet with her tears, wiped them with her hair and anointed them with fragrant oil?
Jesus pointed out to the Pharisee in whose house she did this that this woman loved Him much because she knew that she was forgiven much.In actuality, none of us have been forgiven little. We have all been forgiven much. As for this woman, she knew it.
Do you? Beloved, if you think that you have been forgiven little, then you will love little. But when you knowthe truth of how much you have been forgiven, you will love Jesus much. Knowing how much you have been forgiven is the secret to loving Jesus! In other words, you will only love Jesus much when you experience His lavish grace and unmerited favor in forgiving you of all your sins—past, present and future—by His one sacrifice at the cross.
So don’t worry about loving Jesus. Just meditate on how totally and completely He has forgiven you, and loving Him much will be your natural response!
Have a good day y’all
